Salon Red Kids Boutique Coupons and Deals
Scout Notes: The days of gifting are just around the corner, and if you've been tapped to play Santa (or maybe Hannukah Harry?) for some good little boys and girls this year, you're likely already feeling the crunch. Mall traffic is bonkers, kids' toys can be weird and confusing and loud-noise-making, and there's always that lingering feeling that the wee tyke's toybox already contains much of what you're ogling on the big-box shelves. But at Salon Red Kids, these fears are swept away just like hair-trimmings from under the fire truck-shaped barber chairs at the back of the room. Instead of feeling overwhelmed with confusing modern toydom (whatever happened to Lincoln Logs?), you'll find yourself giddy with childlike glee at all the fun to be had in Salon Red's kid-approved toystore. That's right: while the other half of the place is for kids' hair-cuttery, this half (the fun half) is a good old-fashioned toy store with a decidedly modern twist. General manager Jennifer Parker and head buyer Sally Cobb (who also stock the boutique at Salon Red's neighboring grown-up shop) have stuffed the store's Ponce location with oodles of offbeat and aww-inducing kids' wares, many of which you won't find anywhere else in town. If you're looking for gifts like no youngster's ever seen before, the Automoblox series, a whole new take on the traditional wooden car, with interchangeable parts and wild colors, and the bamboo, eco-friendly creations by Hape. Even the steadfast classic, the humble wooden toy, gets a slick modern upgrade from Anamalz, whose lions, tigers and bears are handmade from sustainable materials. Books from eponymous kid-friendly publisher Klutz are perfect for the young bookwork, crafter or wiseacre. If you're shopping for a young fashion bug, be sure to browse the clothing selection, featuring tiny, stylish offerings from local designer Lilliwear, Addie & Ella, Tea, and others. See? You don't have to resort to the confusing, newfangled toys of today, nor the simple old playthings of yesteryear to please the little ones. Just make a stop at Santa's workshop, which just happens to be in Decatur.
